Scripts to auto generate time lapse movies

Researched, downloaded, ported to AIX, compiled, installed and tested a variety of unix packages that might convert a folder full of images into Quicktime movie files. Finally settled on ffmpeg (from CVS). Wrote perl script that would run the package as a nightly cron job. Unfortunately, ffmpeg does not "flatten" the movie to facilitate web viewing, so also appear to need quicktime4linux. Still balancing the compression parameters.
